Kadamba chutney recipe
Kadamba chutney | vegetable chutney is a easy South Indian chutney recipe, made with mixed vegetables. When amma was living in an apartment few years agao, they used to celebrate a festival there. During that time, there will be bulk cooking in a common place for all of them. On the last the day of the festival, they made this kadmaba chutney with all the left over veggies. Hooked by the taste of chutney she asked for the recipe and noted down too. Though i have heard the recipe from her, never attempted to make it at home. Few weeks while clearing up the refrigerator, i tried out this chutney. We all loved it with idli and dosa. Yesterday made this again for the posting this recipe of kadamba chutney in jeyashirs kitchen. Check out my full collection of chutney recipes.
